TECHNOLOGY’S IMPACT ON ACCOUNTING & FINANCE JOBS
CFOs are three times as likely to see job gains instead of losses due to advanced technology.
Executives predict there will be:
|Significantly more/some more jobs created than lost 59%|
|No net change in jobs 22%|
|Significantly more/some more jobs lost than created 19%|
When asked if tech makes positions in the profession more or less appealing, CFOs said:
|Less appealing 19%|
|No difference 20%|
|More appealing 61%|
Top 3 reasons these jobs are more appealing:
|1. Greater insights into the business to help with decision making|
|2. The opportunity to work with advanced tools|
|3. More time for higher-value work|
